OK Content, Terrible Reading

This program is OK but basic. If you are already familiar with nano tech, you probably already know much of what's in this audiobook. To be fair, this is an introduction however, one chapter covers the basics of the metric system. If you don't already know about the metric system, then you have bigger problems than learning about nano tech.

The real problem with this program is that it is read by the author. She stops in the middle of sentences for uncomfortably long periods of time and talks in the most boring monotone possible. I feel sorry for the student in her classes that have to listen to her take interesting material and hammer it flat.

Any additional comments?

The information in this read was pretty outdated as were many of the concepts. If you are completely uninitiated in the field then its an ok start. I was surprised since the Modern Scholar series is normally really good.
